Adventures in High Technology

Adventure in High Technology, which started in 1983, is an annual program of the Rotary Club of Nepean - Kanata offered to senior High School students who have an interest in exploring the potential of a career in the exciting world of high technology. As a result, the program assists participants in making more informed career decisions. The program involves many local, prominent businesses and industries which have agreed to guide the students with ‘hands on’ learning opportunities, not only in the world of computers, but also in other disciplines using Hi-Tech applications to push the envelope in their respective fields.
Participating organizations include educational institutions, economic development organizations, life sciences organizations and small to medium sized ‘start-ups’. The program is five days in duration and will take place on October 19-23, 2014. Participating Rotary clubs sponsor senior high school students from their local high schools who have an interest in pursuing careers in high technology. In addition, sponsoring clubs arrange for their transportation to Ottawa. The Rotary Club of Nepean-Kanata organizes and manages the daily program and arranges for accommodation through billeting with Rotary club members and friends of Rotary. The event culminates with a high profile banquet for participants and business sponsors. Application forms and flyers are available online at
